Criminal Trespass

arrestBasically, trespassing is being somewhere you are not supposed to be. While it might seem harmless, it is important to take these types of accusations seriously. Any type of criminal conviction can impact your ability to get jobs and even rent an apartment. Criminal trespass is broken up into two degrees.

First degree criminal trespass is a gross misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. This is charged when an individual knowingly enters or remains in a building unlawfully. A common example is when someone is asked to leave a restaurant or bar and refuses to leave.

Second degree criminal trespass, instead is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Second degree criminal trespass is like first degree, except without the building. An example would include someone loitering in a non-building parking lot after previously being notified not to do so.

Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldn't be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.
